Written answers (Question to Finance)

I have no role in relation to Section 14 (2) of the Public Service Management (Recruitment and Appointments) Act 2004.  The question of appointing an investigator is a matter for the Commission for Public Service Appointments

However, as indicated in my reply to Parliamentary Question No. 49 of 28 May 2014, I am advised by the Revenue Commissioners that a full investigation has been launched into the matter in question by the Revenue Commissioners who have requested the Commission for Public Service Appointments to undertake an audit of this competition on its completion.
